Here are some of tested and suggested mods for Descent 3. If you have more that you'd like to share here is the exact place.
Note. It is better to test each mod with gog installer first before you add new one to this topic.
1. Basewars
Descent 3 in space! Spinoff of the Hyperspace series. Basewars takes D3 to a whole new level of gameplay with player-vs-player conquests spread over an interactive space setting.

2. Mod Pack by jr2
This is a collection of mods (a TON of them!) for Descent 3 or Descent 3 + Mercenary, by jr2:

The most important mods to get are instareap, guardian, teams (aka. 4-team team anarchy), and team hoard.

Descent 3 Installer.
If you need help with Descent issues, and GOG is unable or too slow, there are several active forums with Descent veterans willing to help:
Planet Descent and the DescentForum.DE in German.

That guy's a total jerk, and he has no business asking people for their personal email.
Does anyone have a torrent of the file, so we can bypass registering at his nazi website?

I don't think Tomas is a jerk. What website can you register at without giving an e-mail addy? I am sure Tomas won't mind not having to pay for the bandwidth needed to supply you with something he worked hard to develop and offers at no charge.

Or, if giving out your e-mail bothers you so much, just use one of dozens of temporary e-mail services. Google "temp email" and you'll find a lot, lasting from a few minutes to 24 hours.

That's what I did. He doesn't accept hotmail or anything else. At least for downloading the game.

I had registered at his site, and even posted a picture of myself holding the physical cd in my hand, but he wouldn't allow me to download his version unless I gave him a personal email, and I'm not willing to do that because of how odd he is. His website seems like a honeypot, so no, I refuse to give him any personal info. Attempting to reason with him just got me banned from the forums, so I'm asking if anyone else can send me the file. It's not doing anybody any good for him to be hoarding a better version of the game, and this reminds me of the 1.5 patch fiasco, when there was a bunch of jerks talking about the patch who had it, and wouldn't release it to the public. The mods he is using were intended for everyone, not a bunch of insiders, and instead of releasing the mods separately, he packed them all in with the full version of the game, which is very questionable, since I don't think he has the right to do that. Like I said, he's nuts and I don't like him at all, so if anyone else can send me the file or the mods, I'd appreciate it.

No one is allowed to add a MOD to D3 and send it as one package. That's breaking the law.

As for the D3 1.5 patch, those of use who were beta testing it weren't allowed to give it out. Sadly some people like feeling like they have power and bragging about it but I had it given to me by the D3 programmers and I wasn't allowed to give it out.

Well, somebody should report him then, because that's exactly what he's doing.
If he wanted to release a mod pack, he should just release the mods without the game. I don't get his logic, unless he's trying to scam people. Which makes sense if you think about why he wants people's personal info, which is none of his business.

I wonder about that. I don't remember all the details, but I'm pretty sure the company was shutting down and the patch was meant to be public. The only reason it wasn't released sooner was lack of a mac version, ridiculously enough. I'm quite glad that somebody finally had the guts to release it, and obviously it was ok because it was supposed to be released anyway. He's a hero in my book, unlike the spineless forum trolling cowards who sat on it for who knows how long, all while bragging how cool it was. I don't think I've ever been more pissed off at someone over the Internet than those guys. This dateiliste guy does come close though.

Gents,

I find this discussioni very interesting.

There's an Entropy on one end who's been trying to get access to that famous Descent 3 installer from Dateiliste so desperately that he even asks for it here. He calls me a 'jerk' several times, because we refused to give him access (due to his "friendlyness"), and therefore insists that someone "reports me". It's currently very difficult for me to type as I'm laughing in tears about so much stupidity. The "proof picture" with an Effenberg finger he provided is not going to change our decision either.

Then we have a CDN_Merlin who seems to know so much about laws that he can't keep his opinion for himself. Please, CDN_Merlin, report us or me to anything or anybody you can think of.. Make sure you won't forget anybody or anything.

Everybody else, please buy Descent 3 from GOG or on CDs in a store or from eBay, then come to Dateiliste and download a handsome all-in-one installer, which is going to save you something like two days of hassle.

Have fun! ;-)

I take it you are the corrupt owner of the website in question, posting a defensive statement because of how obviously illegal and dishonest your website is. You don't have the right to distribute descent 3 whether or not people own the game, and you certainly don't have the right to selectively allow people access to public mods. Make the mods public dude. I don't see how you can rationalize your website at all, since it is so obviously illegal, but w/e. Good luck with the investigation. Hopefully one of your brainwashed cult members will release the mods separately after your site shuts down. PS. He's probably collecting your personal information to use as a bargaining chip in investigations. You're all going to burn. Think for a second about why he keeps his website so locked down.

Both are somewhat dead links now. Basewars can instead be found here. The mod torrent, while the link still works, appears not to be sufficiently seeded anymore.
